Rita Ora's new album is about female empowerment, with the 24-year-old star determined to tackle issues of gender equality on the record
Rita Ora's new album is about female empowerment.
The 'Poison' hitmaker is currently working on her second studio album and has teased fans can expect a record "all about p**sy power" because she wants to celebrate female independence and discuss issues of gender equality.
She explained: "It's really about how we get judged for the things that we do and how men don't.
"I know it's part of society, but I think we can still stick together as females.
"The motive of this album all really came from the nature of being European."
The 24-year-old star - who has reportedly worked with Ed Sheeran and Disclosure on the LP - continued to say she believes it's an "exciting time" for female musicians because there are so many women celebrating who they are.
She told Hot 97 radio station: "Also I feel like at the moment, females have never been closer - pop stars, specifically. It's an exciting time for females in this industry."
Last month, Rita - who recently split up with her boyfriend Ricky Hil - revealed she has also worked with 'Loyal' singer Chris Brown, with their collaboration set to be her next single.
After the news they had worked together was revealed, she said: "Chris Brown is strong, powerful and someone that is important to me personally and professionally.
"The discrimination and all what people think? If you have a great song then no one cares."
